If you've been up since mid-summer you should probably get some rest!


But seriously I have no idea what "black strike" you're talking about.

Black strike ?

It went up for the passing of Woodwardjnr in August and if it went down, I didn't notice.

EDIT:

The black strike goes through (it's a horizontal black line, like strike-through text) the lower half of the ATS logo in the nav bar (top left).

The black stripe on the top left of the banner, the ATS logo.

And as far as I know, no one else has passed. I'm not sure why it's still there, that member's been gone a while now. TBH, I think it's approaching (if not already in) member apathy mode, or visual white noise mode (where it ceases being noticed, period) Overdoing something in remembrance runs a high risk of leading to "meh" with remembering the next member who passes on. If something's always there, it becomes sort of visual white noise in the background.

There's got to be a better way to memorialize our late members...Not that I have any real suggestions that would work, but maybe a Memoriam forum would be a good idea. Can't blend that into the background as easily over time.

Oh yes, that looks right.

I normally use dark mode and it's not that noticeable since the background is black but in the light mode you can see it's a black stripe and it stands out a lot more. It just looks like a modified logo in dark mode.

Another member had passed since him, yes. Also, a prominent member has a severe health condition and is in recovery. That may be the reason for as to why the strike through logo image is still up. Assuming they will keep it till the end of the year for the losses throughout it.
